Lucy Lawless a gay icon in the Bible Belt

Posted by Ariane in May 26,2015 with No Comments

Months spent in a Louisiana city most Kiwis have never heard of would probably have the majority of Hollywood stars looking for a way out. But Lucy Lawless is not like other stars.

Almost as famous as an activist and charity worker as she is for her screen work, the 47-year-old mother of three made world headlines when she was arrested as part of a Greenpeace protest, and is tireless in her campaign to make the world a safer and happier place for future generations.

“I want my children to have a stable future. I want them to have the chance to live to a ripe old age and not live in a world that’s stressed with environmental refugees and a society where poverty is rampant because those are unsafe societies,” she says, admitting being famous is a real plus when it comes to promoting her beliefs.

Lucy Lawless loves playing a villain on Salem

Posted by Ariane in May 17,2015 with No Comments

She once offered the ultimate in female heroism, now some 20 years later Lucy Lawless is playing the most diabolical villain of her career – and loving it.

Lawless’ latest project sees her join a cast including Janet Montgomery, Shane West and Seth Gabel in the second season of the hit supernatural fiction series Salem.

It’s a dark, horror-fiction reimagining of the infamous Salem witch trials, in which Lawless’s character, Countess Palatine Ingrid von Marburg, is the last witch in an ancient German line.

“She’s quite awful, I’ve never played a character that I would perceive as a villain but she is, and she’s completely thrilling to play,” Lawless says gleefully.

Actresses Lucy Lawless & Jaime Murray Perform Jean-Paul Sartre’s “No Exit” for The Partially Examined Life Podcast

Posted by Ariane in May 05,2015 with No Comments

Lucy Lawless (Star of Xena the Warrior Princess and notable contributor to such shows as Spartica, Battlestar Galactica, and Parks & Recreation) previously appeared on the Partially Examined Life Philosophy Podcast in Fall 2012. And, in Spring 2013, she sang with me (under my musician moniker Mark Lint) on an original song called “Things We Should Do Before We Die.” Now she’s joined fellow PEL host Wes Alwan (“The Valet”) and me to create an audioplay of Jean-Paul Sartre’s 1944 play “No Exit,” where she plays the working class, hostile lesbian Inès Serrano with a pretty hilarious off-the-cuff generically European accent against my relatively deadpan Joseph Garcin.

The third damned soul in our one-room hell was played by a delightfully shrieky Jaime Murray, friend and Spartacus co-star of Lucy’s. You likely know Jaime for her role as Lila, the psychotic main guest star in Season 2 of Dexter, and right now she appears in the sci-fi shows Defiance and Warehouse 13.

The play is about three dead people stuck in a room together, any two of which would probably reach some equilibrium. But, as a threesome, they enter into a toxic dynamic where none can get what he or she needs out of the others.

‘Salem’s’ Lucy Lawless: ‘All I want is everything’

Posted by Ariane in Apr 04,2015 with Comments Off on ‘Salem’s’ Lucy Lawless: ‘All I want is everything’

The residents of “Salem” are going to be shaking in their boots come Season 2. But it won’t be thanks to Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery).

For the second outing of WGN America’s drama about the townspeople and witches of 17th century Salem, Mass., a new, powerful woman is claiming her territory: Countess Palatine, Ingrid von Marburg played by “Xena: Warrior Princess’” Lucy Lawless.

“The countess is going to be, I think, a driving force in Mary’s life because Mary has what I want,” Lawless tells Zap2it. “I want everything. All I want is everything. Me and my curious son move in and it’s not going to go well I’m afraid. But it’ll be a lot of fun … I just want to give her hell.”

During the Season 1 finale, Mary finally completed the Grand Rite and unleashed a plague on the people of Salem. However, the Countess — who is one of the only remaining descendants of an ancient line of European witches — doesn’t respect Mary for her accomplishment, she only envies her for it.

“There’s multiple agendas for her,” says co-creator Adam Simon. “She wants to seize control. She is the character who was alluded to last season who Increase [Mathers] defeated attempting the Grand Rite about 60 years earlier. Now she doesn’t look like she could be that old, but we find out she’s much older than that. She’s here to find out who is it that exceeded at what [she] failed to do, and [to find out if she can] seize it.”

The Countess is clearly not an opposing force that “Salem” fans have encountered before. She is a beast in her own right and has secrets and powers that not even Mary fully understands.

“She’s more than a rival,” says co-creator Brannon Braga. “She’s there to do bad things. She’s Mary’s biggest threat of all time.”

“Salem” Season 2 premieres Sunday, April 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on WGN America.
